Ladies and Gentlemen, the votes have been counted and verified, and I can gleefully reveal that the next book (formerly known round these parts as Biscuits & Lies) from your resident scribbler Susie Day will be called…
GIRL MEETS CAKE
I love it, I love it, I love it to bits! Mmmcake. Cakey cakey cake. Hee! I may need to celebrate in an appropriate face-stuffing manner: who’s with me?
Those who have already heard a whisper about the plot will know that the Cake in question is in fact a Gingerbread Man (or boy…blimey, so complicated), and thus technically not a Cake at all. Rather than be drawn into this ever-controversial topic, I direct you to the authoritative Nice Cup of Tea and a Sit Down coverage of the infamous Jaffa Cake ‘cake or biscuit?’ debate. (Scroll to the bottom – but don’t miss the ‘Jamectomies’!) When I worked as a college porter, I passed many an hour reading their biscuit reviews in lieu of eating any (the biscuit tin only ever had Rich Tea, a biscuit so rubbish it barely deserves the name). Mmmbiscuits. And cake. Mmmmmmm.
To the kitchen, Batman!
